Sigma Releases Wide Angle 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM Lens

Sigma Corp has released the new 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM wide angle lens which features the company’s new “F” Low Dispersion (FLD) lens glass.

It is a rectilinear lens, first introduced at PMA 2010 in February. It is touted to be the widest angle zoom lens in the market today. The 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM is designed specifically for APS-C size image sensors and has an equivalent angle of view of a 12-24mm lens when used on digital cameras of that sensor size.

The lens is currently available in Canon mount at all authorized Sigma dealers for the MSRP of $1,100, and it will be available in Sigma, Nikon, Sony and Pentax mounts in the coming weeks.
